Because I knew you were wondering…
While I consider myself a little past my “hipster heyday,” to most I’d probably still fit the bill. If you ask me where I got my outfit I’ll probably tell you “it’s vintage.” I hang out in bars the size of studio apartments then stop going the second they get a good yelp review. I constantly complain about gentrification and the lack of yoga studios in my neighborhood within the same breath. I talk about things like crystals and sage and “the universe” without a hint of either seriousness or irony. I genuinely enjoy contemporary art. I once took a college course called “techno-bodies in cyber space.”
Have I lost you yet? Stay with me.
As soon as I passed the age of 22, I learned pretty quickly that too much pabst makes me feel like crapst. I need vegetables, physical activity, nature and mornings in my life in order to be a happy successful adult human. That said, a life that consists solely of green smoothies and spin class doesn’t appeal much to me either….
So that’s it. The Healthy Hipster chronicles the life of one gal striving to bring together the strange bedfellows of hipsterdom and healthy living – and its all right here for you to get inspired by, judge harshly and enjoy.
